LOL! JK. Honestly, I think any savings is better then retaining Walter & believe it is simply time to move on.
Go to link posted http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/houston-texans/kevin-walter/
and look lower left hand margin and it states his roster bonus of $5m being paid and 2012 salary reduction. This is what Lucky & I are discussing. I thought if a player got an upfront roster bonus
it could not be prorated. As his seems to be prorated, it must work as does a regular signing bonus. Not sure why Texans differentiated it as roster rather than signing.
